    Reebok/CCM Pro glove codes

    That sports 2k thread is a monster. Just read all of it instead of making dinner. Ha

    Reebok/CCM Pro glove codes

    Thanks! Is there a resource anywhere that explains their different pro lines? Weird how CCM has the prostock type codes, and Bauer seems to just use the retail names.

    Reebok/CCM Pro glove codes

    Being that it’s commonly used, does it map to a retail glove, or could someone describe the fit?

    Reebok/CCM Pro glove codes

    Do the CCM pro stock glove codes match up to particular retail lines? I always see HG and then a two digit number. In particular, I’m looking at HG12 and HG41, if anyone has any idea what those are.

    Pro Stock Warrior Question

    Qr Pro is 800, QXT and QR3 are 600.

    Pro Stock Warrior Question

    QXTs are the QX3 with different graphics. These are marketed towards junior and college teams who want to spend slightly less. I think it’s a great stick, especially give the price. Maybe slightly blade heavy, but you only notice that if you’re looking for it.

    Do your edge holders squeak?

    I was hoping that “hockey hack” was gonna be replacing edge with another holder.

    Pants question

    I’m 6’1”, 185, 32-33ish inch waist. I’ve worn in large Easton’s and now large Warrior DT2s. I always have to cinch the waist super tight. Same as you, I feel like M+1 would be ideal, but I always give up looking and just buy an L. It all depends on where your height is too... my hip to knee might be longer than yours.

    CCM U+ Glove fit

    Can anyone compare the fit of CLs to QLT gloves? Are they similar? Im having trouble with CCM lineage because they keep changing the name of lines. I can’t remember what the CLs evolved into, if anything I like the QLT290s I have, and have been eyeing up some Pens CLs.

    LS Edge Holders Rattle inside?

    My name is Brian, and I had this name 1st!! I don’t want to get in a “competition” over it, but maybe you should pick a “new direction” with your user name? (it’s all good. I think you have enough Xs to differentiate.)

    Tips for cleaning gloves (inside)

    Once a year I soak all of my protective gear in the tub in oxy clean, then rinse it off. I was worried about the effect on my palms, but I saw someone (like marka) point out that sweating into them is more or less the same as water. Ive never had any problem with any ill effect on any of my stuff. I don’t notice a difference in palm feel at all. I tend to use 2nd tier gloves, so I don’t have baby kangaroo leather, just synthetic nash stuff.

    STX HPR stallion stick.

    I have a 75 flex. It feels like it plays stiffer than that, but still usable. I didn’t like it much the first few times I used it because of that. Despite being brand new, it was relegated to a back up stick, until my qx3 broke unexpectedly. It helped me to sit and shoot on an empty net with it so I could feel how it flexed and shot. Wrist shots and slap shots are decent. I like midkicks better than low kicks, so I don’t feel like there’s a lag on the release. Passes are crisp and accurate. Shaft is boxy, which I like. Blade is stiff and feel is fine. They make a big deal out of the forhand and backhand being different types of carbon, but I don’t notice a difference at all. Weight and balance are good. I don’t count grams, and I’m more concerned that it doesn’t fee blade heavy. Its not my favorite stick ever, but I don’t dislike it by any stretch. I had a Stallion 500 and liked the flex on that better. That felt smoother and easier.

    Super tacks 2.0 vs as1

    @dkmiller3356 in your LTR of the 2.0, you said you thought the 75 played stiffer, almost like a 85 flex. Do you feel the as1 plays stiffer as well?

    Ft1 shin guards

    I have the Qlt 290s with the same problem. Also, stitching started coming out everywhere about 6 months in. I can resew them easy, but it’s annoying.

    Any use Referee Elbow Pads?

    I used to wear soft cap elbow pads. I got slew footed and landed directly on my elbow. It hurt for weeks, and was uncomfortably sensitive when I bumped it. I made the decision then to always wear hard cap elbows. I dont know if it was intentional, but accidents will happen. I don’t worry about getting slashed on the wrists, I worry about the spills a few times a year where i land hard on my elbows.
